A Guide to Panasonic Washing Machine 2021

Panasonic, is an established Japanese brand that turned 100, last year. A small company that started its business as a bulb socket manufacturer has grown into a conglomerate employing over two lakhs of employees across the globe. Panasonic is the largest consumer electronics manufacturer from Japan, a country known for its quality. Panasonic offers the complete gamut of washing machines—from semi-automatic to fully automatic—from top loaders to front loaders. It is a safer option for those who want to try the premium features of the washing machine at an affordable price point. Panasonic is a much more reliable brand when compared to many new local players.

Key Washing Machine Technologies

  • Active Foam Wash: Smart & Effective Wash

Panasonic Active Foam wash is a result of years of research and hard work of the Japanese tech company Panasonic. What it does is, from the very beginning of the wash cycle it makes the drum rotate with the maximum speed so that the detergent is completely dissolved with the water. A concentrated shower of water is then directed on the loaded laundry which penetrates foam deep into the garment’s fiber to pluck out adamant dirt.

ActiveFoam is a three-step process:

  1. Foam generation: Fins of the pulsator located at the bottom of the tub rotates and dissolves detergent in the water so that creamy concentrated foam is formed
  2. Foam penetration: Foam generated in the first step now cascades and penetrates through the clothes in a bid to wrap around the dirt
  3. Foam regeneration: Ring shower ejaculates from 6 outlets to incessantly regenerate foam, helping in profound penetration inside the fabric of clothes to pull out stubborn stains

ActiveFoam wash found in the new series of fully automatic washing machines offers a neat and clean wash with a shorter wash cycle.

Low-end semi-automatic machines don’t have ActiveFoam technology but as an alternative use Aqua Shower Rinse. A powerful shower of water is streamed out from the center of the tub, meanwhile, there is continuous drainage of dirty water. This helps in delivering hygienic and detergent-free wash even in semi-automatic Panasonic machines.

  • Stain Master Removes Toughest Stains

Be it stubborn ink stains, soiled collars or oily stains with Panasonic washing machine powered by Stain Master can tackle it all! Specially designed considering the Indian washing need, it removes all common types of stains without needing a prior pre-wash or later hand wash. The washing machine automatically soaks and scrubs with a combination of hot and cold water along with the foam, so that users do not have to do all the hard work of washing by themselves. Stain Master using information about stains from the network of smart sensors varied approaches for dealing with different stains. Like for example, sweat stains are removed using the  agitation approach, wherein strong water flow is directed on the stain. Whereas mud stain is removed by rubbing the fabric. Stain from spills of soya, sauce, and ilk is removed by rubbing the clothes after soaking in the solution of detergent.

  • Effective Gentle Wash Hexa Cube Drum

Premium Panasonic front load washing machines come with an astutely designed Hexa cube drum which comes with more than 2,000 holes (with a fine diameter of 0.24 centimeters) through which water is gently directed onto the fabric’s fiber. This way it ensures buttons, embroidery, and other delicate items attached to the clothes are treated gently. Hexa cube drum comes with riser wings inside it, which toss and tumbles the loaded laundry inside the appliance effectively. With close to 140 holes in each wing, it generates strong but gentle penetrating water flow.

  • Gentle Hand Wash: Bid Adieu to Hand Washing

There is always a fear of washing delicate laundry elements like lingerie, lace, satin, scarf, etc in the washing machine. Most of us generally prefer to hand wash these delicate items. But thanks to Gentle Hand Wash technology, you can wash these delicacies in the washer itself without apprehensions. Just putting clothes on the “Gentle Hand Wash Net” in the tub ensures careful and gentle cleaning. The main USP of this technology is that clothes don’t directly touch the pulsator or rub against each other. This averts delicate clothes from depreciation during the wash.

  • Aqua Spin Rinse to Save Water by 25%

Modern Panasonic top load washing machines come with Aqua Spin Rinse technology wherein a powerful ‘waterfall’ of rinse water penetrates through the laundry loaded inside the appliance. The Aqua Spin Rinse is implemented in two rinse cycles: the first is shower rinse wherein water showers are directed on the fabric inside the tub which is rotating at high speed. Second is soak rinse wherein the tub filled with water and loaded laundry is soaked for about 10 minutes. This technology helps in reducing water consumption by 25%.

  • AquaBeat Technology for 3-way wash

A new generation of front loaders from Panasonic is powered with AquaBeat technology. This is 3-way washboard lift mechanism which optimizes the washing performance in order to conserve water, energy and time. The strong 3-beat water flow mechanism completely removes stains from the fibers while the powerful AquaBeat action deters the dirt from sticking back to clothes.

3 distinct motions facilitate effective removal of dirt:

  1. Beat wash: Tumble motion wash for a strong movement of load inside the drum
  2. Rain wash: Detergent and water are pass through the fabric of the clothes because of centrifugal force
  3. Toss wash: Imparts massaging effect through lite toss-like movement inside the drum.

As a trimmed down alternative to AquaBeat, semi-automatic machines from Panasonic comes with 3 wash programs: regular, gentle and strong.

  • Auto Tub Clean at 90 Degree Celsius

Premium front load washers like NA-127XB1W01 comes with an inbuilt heater which not helps in doing the wash with hot water but also helps  in sterilizing the wash tub. This washing machine comes with Tub Clean feature wherein it cleanses itself with hot water at 90 degree Celsius for sterilization, freeing itself from all the residues molds and other fine impurities.

  • Rear Control Panel with Electrostatic. Switch for Easy Operation

Modern high-end front loaders from Panasonic come with an ergonomically designed rear control panel with electrostatic touch. This arrangement mitigates pressure on the neck because the control panel is now angled to be within the operator’s line of vision. Moreover, it’s designed to enable use even when the lid door is open. A stylish electrostatic touch panel comes with direct course selection buttons with vivid pictograms. To the user’s delight, they are back-lit too. It gives out a beep sound on each button press so the operator can know his/her selection is registered.

  • Easy Wide Opening & Wide Drum Inlet

Since the modern top-loaders are equipped with a rear control panel that doesn’t block the opening, the opening is now made wider, 480mm wide for models like NA-S085M2L01, making it easier to load large items like a blanket. Also, it ensures good visibility even at the bottom because the opening isn’t eclipsed by the control panel. So, even smaller laundry items like socks and undergarments aren’t overlooked.

Taking cues from top loader counterparts, new front loaders from Panasonic also comes with a Wide Drum Inlet. It comes with a unique wide opening door making it easier to stuff larger clothes like bed sheets inside the machine. Not only this, but it also has a huge glass door of the drum in front, so the user can watch the washing process. This glass door is double-glazed to trim down the noise level occurring out of operation.

  • Robust Rust-free Body with Convenient Castor wheels

New Panasonic semi-automatic machines come with a durable polypropylene body which is robustly designed to be rust-proof. Also, they are equipped with castor wheels which impart portability to the washer. Castor wheels are made up of good quality plastic, capable enough to handle the heavy load of the appliance.

  • Powerful Pulsator and Smart Inverter Motor

New class of top loaders from Panasonic comes Dual Pulsator which imparts multi-directional dancing water flow to deliver a thorough cleaning. While the modern front loaders come with brushless digital inverter motor with the 3D sensor. This powerful combination analyzes the drum movement in each dimension with high precision to adjust the speed of the motor in accordance with the load for optimum performance.

  • Voltage Control & Auto Restart

Power cuts and voltage fluctuations are common across household in India. Panasonic’s elite washers come with Voltage Control technology to tackle this problem. This feature protects the machines from spikes in the supply. Also, it safeguards machine from under voltage by stabilizing the supply voltage so that machine don’t get damaged. Moreover, they come with Auto Restart feature, which makes sure that in case of power cut, the machine will resume the washing cycle from where it stopped. So, users don’t have to worry about the complete wash cycle getting repeated in case of power cuts.

Panasonic Pros and Cons

Though Panasonic is a trusted brand it still doesn’t easily feature into the premium brand’s list of experts. So, let’s see what are the benefits and compromises of owning a Panasonic washer.

One of the main USP of Panasonic washers is they are energy efficient. It’s evident from the fact that premium front loaders from Panasonic come with an A+++ Energy Saving rating as per European standards. They also come with an eco-saving mode that consumes nearly half the amount of water and energy compared to the ordinary wash cycle. Though it takes a little longer for a wash to complete. But again, the good thing is that the new breed of premium washers also comes with delay start functionality so that users can schedule this eco wash at night. Their washing performance is decent enough and can remove a variety of stains. But when it comes to oily stains it lags in the cleaning results.

Another good thing is that modern front loaders come with 15 min brisk wash option to clean lightly soiled clothes in a jiffy. But then the downside is that it would take a longer time to dry the washed clothes.
